Top 5 Best Parrots for Beginners

More people are buying Parrots everyday but reselling them at an even faster rate, this is due to the misconception of how easy it is to look after these beautiful creatures. Parrots can be a misleading pet due to people thinking they do not have time for a cat or dog so they need to invest in something smaller that needs less attention. Realistically parrots need just as much attention as our feline and canine friends. If your heart is set on adopting a Parrot it is best to start off with a 'beginner' parrot if you have not had much interaction with Parrots before or if you are unsure as to what you are getting yourself into. Your feathery friend will become attached to you for a big part of your life and all of theirs. 


Number One: Budgies 

Budgies are very social birds, they love to investigate every nook of your room and strand of your hair. They love to 'chat' and are inexpensive to care for. Native to Australia. Lifespan 5-10 years in captivity. 

Number Two: Cockateils

Their singing is beautiful and they love imitating your sounds. Can gauge their mood by assessing their crest. Native to Australia. Lifesan 15- 20 years in captivity.
